For a long time, the world of pickup trucks is much more than just work. Besides typical workhorses, we have all kinds of designs, including hi-performance versions. Ford has Raptor, Ram has Rebel. On the other side, Chevy’s off-roaders aren’t as capable and that the reason why many believe we could see the 2022 Chevy Silverado SS in the near future. However, this model would come with a little bit different design, not necessarily focused on off-roading.
Instead of paying all attention to off-roading, this model would be more like a street racer. Therefore, it would come with different kinds of upgrades. Naturally, we would also see a powerful engine, but the suspension setup, and hardware in general, would be completely different. The same thing could be said for the styling.
At this point, the 2022 Chevy Silverado SS is just a rumor. The officials are still quiet, so take the following paragraphs with a big reserve.
2022 Chevy Silverado SS Redesign
Of course, the 2022 Chevy Silverado SS would be heavily based on the standard model. The overall layout would be the same, but we would see several upgrades as well. These modifications are expected both in terms of styling and mechanics.
When it comes to the mechanical aspect, the first thing that comes to mind, besides the engine, is the chassis. Of course, we would see a completely new suspension setup, characterized by stiffer dumpers and lower ground clearance. These things would certainly improve the cornering of this truck and handling in general. Naturally, upgraded brakes are another thing that comes to mind.
Besides mechanical upgrades, we count on a lot of unique styling solutions. Of course, the overall appearance wouldn’t change, but we count on things like the new body kit, which would include things like new bumpers and similar things. A unique grille, with a different pattern and more prominent appearance, should also, happen, as well as things like exclusive wheels, lower-profile tires etc.
Exclusive interior details are expected as well but before we get on that, keep in mind the rumors about the interior update. Allegedly, all models will come with a new cabin next year. This would include a new dashboard, general improvement in terms of quality etc. Whether these changes come or not, the 2022 Chevy Silverado SS would also feature several exclusive details.
Some of the things that come to mind are new seats, which would be firm and with more support. Also, we would expect to see things like unique color schemes and upholstery, while a different steering wheel and instrument cluster also come to mind. Finally, we expect to see all kinds of signature “SS” badges and accessories, including some stitching on seats and the dash.
When it comes to the cab configuration, we presume that this version would probably be available in a crew cab layout with a short bed only. Still, we wouldn’t exclude the possibility to see an extended cab version in the offer as well.
2022 Chevy Silverado SS Engines
Most car enthusiasts would consider this the most interesting part of the 2022 Chevy Silverado SS. If we consider that the regular model is available with a 6.2-liter V8 that puts out around 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, we would definitely expect to see more power in this case. Some sources suggest a supercharged version of the same engine, which would feature a max output of around 650 horsepower.
The engine would come in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission, while we would expect to see paddle shifters as well. The power would be sent to either rear or all wheels.
2022 Chevy Silverado SS Release Date and Price
At this point, it’s hard to say anything about these things, considering that the officials are still quiet and that the 2022 Chevy Silverado SS is no more than a rumor. Still, we wouldn’t be surprised if we see this model already in the next year. We presume that things about this arrival would become clear in the next couple of months, so stay tuned for new updates.
